Employees are completely dispensable.

ProsBeing in the entertainment industry, people like to have fun. They tend to be relatively laid back and casual. Always surrounded by art and creativity. Also, this industry is safe - the video game industry seems to be going strong in this weak economy.

ConsI simply do not understand the hiring process here. They never like to pull people up, even those who have been dedicated and knowledgeable employees for years. Instead, they tend to hire new people from different industries who end up not working out. The complete lack of hope for promotion or recognition has resulted in a VERY HIGH turn-around. Ex-employees have mostly gone to competitor companies. Upper management is vicious and there is absolutely no feeling of trust or sharing of information. The pay here is notoriously low for this industry, so not much motivation there either.

Advice to Senior ManagementEmployees should be a company's best asset - however, your treatment of the employees suggest the opposite. Listen to the employees and build them up.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good experience as a first job but no real experience gained after 3 years of work for the company.

    I worked at Namco Bandai full-time for more than 3 years


    Pros: Good work environment with a low age average, where work can be made fun regardless of… Cons: Bad communication between departments, especially when work was divided between different subsidiaries, from different countries. Almost no proof of… Advice to Senior Management: Incresing the recognition shown for lower level staff could increase… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
